Object + Artifact: Experimental Embroidery
Registration deadline: February 28
Learn and experiment with fundamental embroidery skills. Using found objects (provided, or bring your own!), explore composition and technique to create artifact-based collages. Discover how the addition of embroidery changes the way you make art and how you think about the creative process.

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes.
